Where does the SpVgg Unterhaching lead? After the missed jump to the top of the table, the team of coach Claus Schromm faces the weeks of truth.
- Despite the defeat against FC Bayern 2 last Friday, SpVgg Unterhaching is still on a direct promotion spot.
- Since the competition did not win either, the battle for promotion places remains exciting.
- Right-back Markus Schwabl: "You won’t win a game anymore".
Three wins and two draws - the Hachinger's record before the duel against the small Bayern was decent - but against the record champions' U23 team coach Claus Schromm's team suffered the first defeat after the winter break.
Markus Schwabl speaks plain text
With a point win, Unterhaching could have secured the top spot in the table and even beat it, since Duisburg, Waldhof Mannheim and Ingolstadt could not win either.
Right-back Markus Schwabl was really eaten after the 0-1. “We missed a huge opportunity today. With a win you are three points ahead of Duisburg, ”the 29-year-old scolded after the game. “We had few compelling chances. So you won’t win a game. ”
Although nobody in Unterhaching speaks aggressively of promotion to the second division, not only the president's son should be annoyed by now. From the 9th to the 11th matchday, the team of coach Schromm was already at the top of the table. There was a tie series of four games and the lead was lost from day 12 onwards.
Despite defeat against FCB 2: good second half results
At that time, the Hachingers would have won in the four games to take their place in the sun again. Despite the defeat on Friday, the second half of the second half of the season is still good: three wins, two draws and one defeat after the winter break.
It seems a little bit like a curse if the suburbs have the chance to win first place, even if FC Bayern 2 was a very unpleasant guest in the sports park. "This team is just too fast for this league," Schromm praised the FCB U23.
In the second half of the season, some high-caliber players from the top half of the table are waiting. Among other things, Ingolstadt, Braunschweig, Meppen and the derby against the lions. On the last match day, there could even be a big showdown: Haching competes with current leaders MSV Duisburg. It could be a crucial game in the fight for promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga.
Haching before the weeks of truth
In order to continue to be involved in the first three places, the game association must solve its compulsory tasks in the next two weeks. The Schromm team will start in Chemnitz on Saturday. The team of coach Patrick Glöckner is on the first relegation zone, but showed increasing form after the winter break and only suffered an unfortunate defeat at the Löwen stadium in Grünwald last weekend.
This game could already be decisive where the journey in the end of the season goes. In the first half of the season, the team temporarily "dropped" to fifth place. A series similar to that between the 10th and 13th matchday with four consecutive draws could mean knockout in the fight for promotion in the decisive weeks of the season.
